Veganism is Nonsense & Me

I've gone meat free after seeing this....it all makes sense. Our ancestors ate meat because they had no clue how to survive! They were basically cavemen, think about it guys! Veganism has over 50 nutrients not found in meat. B12 is found in plants, it's obvious. Vitamin K2 and D3 are abundant in plants! Are you kidding me? Humans are herbivores and always will be. I'm glad our society has finally woke up. Today I am getting beyond meat burger :) Veganism is the least we can do for the snaminals.

The only reason vegans look so sick and pale is because we are tired of cute animals being harmed. We don't care about mosquitoes, cockroaches, flies and ants. We love bees though.

Oh no!! "Cows bellow miserably when their calves are separated three days after giving birth"... Actors also bellow for years when Trump was elected, or the deplorables voted for Brexit. But that's not a reason to give them what they want, at the expense of the majority. Take personal responsibility for your own actions and make the world better with your endless creativity, instead of censuring others.

Yeah Mr. Phoenix. Maybe spend millions of dollars to help some people in the world? Nah, just buy big mansions and stuff. Hypocrites evrywhere and people celebrate them lol.

A beautifully played speech. People are so naive to think that such a well trained actor did the speech natural out of heart lol :D The fact is humanity need to eat. Animals eat animals, so human does, as we are part of food chain. Stop the selfdestruction of humanity.

Aside from Pesci's, this has to be the best acceptance speech of all time.

VEGANISM! is it admirable when you use your compassion to other people, but, is sublime that you extend your ethics and more compassion to other creatures

What about the voices of little children who’ve been sacrificed by Robert De Niro & many many others in worthless Hollywood! All that are guilty of spirit cooking? Oh! And those who are guilty of the same on GMA? IDK, little George? Still BFF with Slick Willy? And how was dinner at Jeffrey Epstein’s house? What else did you do at Jeffrey’s house? Do your wife & daughter’s know, yet? Soon the American people will hear the Truth, THEN....... We Will see the PROOF!! Tic Tok..............sleep well

This award ceremony is not even about movies any more. Once over - an actor or actress - may have used a very small part of their speech to highlight a particular social or political issue they were passionate about - but now it's just straight up political speech none stop. Racism, veganism, queers, trans, gays, Donald Trump and right wing politics, etc, you just can't help lecturing us, can you? Is this a movie ceremony or not? Your job as actors is to entertain people in movies, and you get compensated very generously for doing so, so please spare us this woke bullshit. I thought you were great as the joker, Joaquin, but you need to remember that you are the recipient of an award at a movie ceremony. You are not an ambassador at the UN. If falling viewing figures are anything to go, I think it's plain to see that people watch the Oscars for the movies, not political ramblings.

DEAR RUSH..I was thinking about George Wallace in his final years.. very ill and confined to a wheelchair, he attempted to use his remaining years to heal wounds. The was some hope you would perhaps use your time to do the same. A PSA against smoking? Support for causes you previously opposed? Helping at a homeless shelter? NO! Instead you champion attacks on... compassion. Sadly you still continue to ignore God's voice;( I

You deserve to know the truth. Watch Earthlings [2005] &/or Dominion [2018], both narrated by Joaquin Phoenix.

That struggle to talk ABOUT River and not TO River just teared my heart to pieces. The pain in his eyes and how much he misses and needs his brother in that moment is almost unbearable to watch because you feel it too. True love hurts as much as this moment right there and I feel honored to have witnessed such purity of the human spirit. Thank you, sir.

I don't understand what being a carnivore has to do with him winning an Oscar. There are places and platforms for that kind of speech outside of the Oscars.

He spoke the truth but i saw acting as well. He is a good actor after all but to me personally the vibes I get are so negative. Some people look bad no matter if they're or not in real life. Joaquin is one of those guys.

He is using his fame for the good of the silent. Not many stars do this. Well done and please people, your decisions of what to eat affects the world. Think of where the meat on your plates come from.

Joaquin Phoenix is not in touch with what what is natural. Animals eat animals and is a perfectly natural thing to do.

i just watched "Joker" and then saw this. this is a spectacular speech but i seem to visualize him as Arthur Fleck and i find it really amazing that even if i know he was acting in the film i still believe he is Arthur. This just goes to show he great of an actor he really is! To be able to make fiction into reality and to be able to make people believe his characters are "real". All in all this is an amazing speech given by an amazing actor!

That was awful. Just awful. Cloying, incoherent, pretentious, sententious, self-righteous, gratuitous, pompous, self-important, hectoring, obnoxious, superficial, and deeply unprofound.
